"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

And it also puts the physcians in the unenviable position of telling the patient they must pay up front, deflecting anger away from the President and Democrats.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

I guess I would have a handout for every patient explaining why this is happening and try to put the blame back on Ali Bama.

Good luck with that carrying a puking kid in one hand and an obamaphone in the other.

Or else of extending credit to the patient, and bearing the full risk that the patient will never pay.

Next steps (by the Obammunists):
- Refuse to renew license of any physician who refuses to accept ObamaCare
- If that doesn't work, nationalize the doctors -- ALL of them.

I have been expecting some kind of coercive legislation involving medical personnel ever since stories started surfacing about doctors refusing to participate in ObamaCare. How dare they?

One of my doctors will go to cash only starting January 1.  I will see him Wednesday for my normal visit so we'll see what the rates will be.

Hopefully the cash rates will be lower, seeing as how the doctor doesn't have to worry about an insurance company cutting reimbursements and doesn't have to carry all that expensive overhead to deal with insurance companies.
